Howdy! I'm Kevin, but you can call me Kev! I’m a full-time traveling wedding and portrait photographer nestled in Tulsa, Oklahoma. My photography style is all about infusing a hint of opulence into your love story while preserving the authenticity of the moment. With over 5 years of experience, I've seen it all and still get goosebumps at every "I do."
When I'm not chasing love stories, I'm embracing my own with my wonderful wife, Maddie, our little sunshine, Nora Grace, and the ever-loyal Finn, our golden retriever. If I'm not framing your love story, you can bet I'm sipping on coffee or chugging a Coke Zero…or both! And don't get me started on my obsession with Middle-earth; I'm a certified Lord of the Rings enthusiast. Let's embark on this photography journey together and create some epic tales of our own!
Hey, nice to meet you!

My photographic journey has been a whirlwind of spontaneity, and I can't wait to share it with you!
In 2019, I was on the cusp of completing my college education, teetering on the edge of uncertainty about my future. However, amid the ambiguity, there was one brilliant beacon of hope – Maddie, the love of my life. I was going to marry that beautiful woman. So, you could say, my future held a glimmer of brightness after all!
As fate would have it, my college class had a final capstone project, and it involved orchestrating an event for our college donors. What my classmates didn't have was a budget for a professional photographer, but tucked away in my closet was a camera I'd purchased years ago with some summer job earnings in 2015. They decided to volunteer me for the task, and perhaps it was destiny calling.
Word of the event spread like wildfire on campus, and suddenly, I found myself swamped with requests for senior portraits. By the time graduation rolled around, I was doing pretty dang well for myself. Initially, I planned to pursue post-grad life and treat my newfound photography "venture" as a side hustle.
But then, the dreaded pandemic hit. Maddie and I tied the knot in June 2020, which was undoubtedly the brightest spot in a challenging period. By February 2021, I'd spent months trying to climb the corporate ladder at a dead-end job, and the writing was on the wall – it wasn't working out. I changed jobs, desperately trying to provide for my wife and myself, but by our one-year anniversary in June 2021, I had been handed my pink slip. It was a devastating blow, and I felt utterly purposeless. Those days were some of the darkest I'd ever experienced.
However, I refused to give up! I prayed and cried out to God for help and provision. HE ANSWERED!
Miraculously, within a day, three random individuals approached me, entrusting me with the monumental task of capturing their weddings. It was confounding. My experience in the wedding industry was minimal, and my portfolio practically screamed "rookie." What drove them to choose me, and how had they even found me? The questions and self-doubt nearly drowned out the emails. But, astonishingly, all three couples booked me within minutes.
It was nothing short of a miracle.
The only explanation I could fathom was divine intervention. I prayed, and God listened. I was in need, and His provision came through.
I cast aside my fears and plunged headfirst into the world of wedding photography. I soaked up absolutely every singe bit of knowledge and immersed myself in all things wedding-related. I invested in education, honed my branding, and upped my marketing game. I hustled like never before, all the while trusting in the guidance and provision of God. After all, if God had saved me from the depths of despair, why wouldn't I trust His direction?
By August 2021, my side hustle had blossomed into a full-fledged wedding photography enterprise!
Since then, I've had the privilege of capturing hundreds of thousands of photographs, traversing the globe, immersing myself in diverse cultures, and even picking up new languages along the way (I’m definitely not an expert but I can at least ask for a coffee!) Through it all, I've managed to craft a fulfilling life for my family and myself.
building wonderful relationships with some of the most incredible people. Somehow, they trust me enough to capture their love stories, and that trust is profoundly humbling. Every day, every couple I encounter serves as a reminder of God’s grace and goodness. The gifts He has bestowed upon me – the ability to capture the beauty of creation – is one I will eternally treasure.
Because of His provision and His goodness, my wonderful wife now enjoys the beautiful role of motherhood, nurturing our precious daughter, whose future couldn't be brighter. Photography has not only been a source of artistic expression and professional growth but has also enabled us to build a life filled with joy and adventure. It's a testament to the incredible opportunities this journey has provided, allowing us to create a life that truly resonates with our dreams and aspirations.
My photographic journey has been a thrilling whirlwind, and in that spontaneity, God has woven together an adventurous and exhilarating tale.
I'd be absolutely delighted to have you join me on this incredible ride!
